Michael M. Lunsford
Michael was born, raised, and grew up in Lafayette. He was inspired by his father Larry Lunsford, well respected in the community for broadcasting and radio journalism in the 1980s.
He has been happily married for twenty-five years to his wife Michelle. Together, they have two wonderful boys. Michael is very active in his community including Sons of the American Revolution and Boy Scouts. He earned Eagle Scout in 1989 and son followed in his footsteps to become an Eagle Scout in 2017.
The catalyst for his involvement in public policy was hearing a single talking point, that local public schools were overcrowded, and wondering if it was true. More importantly: if anyone had even bothered to check. Ultimately discovering that it was false began an incredible journey of research and discovery that eventually become an organization.
Accountability and transparency are only possible so long as someone is willing to shine the light of day into the dark corners of local government. That is our calling and we are determined to see it through.
Past experience in technology, programming, and love for the community, has prepared him to advance “Citizens for A New Louisiana.”
He is devoting his time and energy to provide the local citizens with the truth and knowledge needed to ensure elected officials with integrity to represent them.
